    GTBTK got a reaction from David89 in Intel tells Core i7-7700K owners to stop overclocking   
    We all live in hope that Intel starts pricing their products at reasonable levels, I am not holding my breath though

    There are none, and here it is impossible to find an i7 2600K (ohh and btw, if I am going to upgrade and old gen CPU, I want it to be a K at least, will overclock once I get a new mobo). I will have to buy one that will be shipped from other countries  
     
    I have a 1050W power supply I am covered there, ohh and btw I bought it for $40 brand new. One hell of a deal I gota say.

    The people who have one seem to be very happy with them. I cannot speak from personal experience though

    Clock droop like that is pretty common even on Intel boards.
     
    The B350 boards do not have the extenal clock chip like the higher end x370 boards as far as I am aware. so you cannot adjust BCLK.
     
    In addition to the Asus CH6, the Asrock Taichi and Gaming Professional and the Gigabyte Gaming k7 also have the b-clock chips

    GTBTK got a reaction from scottyseng in Trouble overclocking with MSI Afterburner   
    With Pascal the slider is a percentage of the voltage headroom between the base value of 1.061 and the maximum of 1,093v. No you cannot change units and 1% does not equal 1mv.
     
    Pascal overclocking is mainly relying on the GPU boost to get the 2100mhz that you are hearing about. The best core clock that you will be able to get is somewhere in the region of 1700 using the slider.
     
    If you look at the voltage curve (Ctrl-F in AB), you can see how the curve increases in the Y value as voltage increases across the X axis from left to right. Each voltage point actually has different overclocking potential. With your card, the point at 1.061V can OC +135 points, as you increase the voltage slider, the next point becomes active, however, 1.075V cannot OC to +135, maybe 1.075V can only get to +130 and remain stable. That same principle applies to each of the remaining points as you move across the graph. You need to test each point along the way to maximize your clock settings.
     
    As you do not game down around teh .800V level, you also have the option of leaving the entire curve at stock values and only pulling the curve values in the 1.075 - 1.093 range up to the high clock speeds and testing your FPS level. With the lower voltage points remaining at lower levels, the card will tend to draw less power and keep you high gaming clock speeds more stable

    GTBTK got a reaction from DocSwag in Do you agree with nVidia's GPU pricing... - IT HAS DOUBLED!   
    As much as I don't like the high prices as a consumer, Something is worth whatever another person is willing to pay for it and there are a lot of people paying the prices so it must be about right.
     
    Nvidia has no real competition at the high end right now and there was a large pent up demand for high end graphics cards due to the 2 year gap between Maxwell and Pascal. They were very lucky that AMD didn't come along with something really desirable in that time gap

    you're an idiot
    there
    I said it
     
    The settings could be completely different on each card, and definitely are, with such a large discrepancy in FPS.
    keep your 1080
    keep your money
    but rid yourself of foolishness

    GTBTK got a reaction from Shiv78 in GTX 1080 Drastic Performance Differences   
    Return the card if you want to by all means but I will tell you this about the MSI cards:
     
    the MSI cooler is one of the most efficient ones going, it is also one of the quietest ones around,
     
    The MSI cards have higher power limits at default settings than the EVGA, Asus and gigabyte cards that help get higher stable overclock. The EVGA cards in particular bounce around because they hit the power limit and downclock a lot
     
    you can flash a Gaming Z bios and get a free upgrade default clock. The PCB and circuitry are identical, the only difference is the naf led on the Z backplate. You shoudl also be able to upgrade the non OC Strix card to the OC version with a bios flash as well

    The combination will work great.
     
    Dont cheap out on the cpu cooler though. 4770K ran hotter but you will have a better experience if you use a quality cooler and not, say, the stock one

    your GPU starts managing the max clock speeds/voltages when it hits 43 deg and will step down further every 3 or so degrees

    yes I know. that is why I pointed out the native resolution setting. a 1070 is never going to make lots of FPS at 4K

    GTBTK got a reaction from Chaos_Sorcerer in Has there ever been a time when AMD's top offering was superior to that of Nvidia's?   
    AMD Gpus are much better that Nvidia for GPGPU type operations in things using OpenCL and the like. That is why the bitcoin miners rushed to buy R9 290s and 390s.Check out luxmark benchmark league tables and the AMD cards top the tables AMD even market the Pro Duo as for creative types rather than gamers. the power of those cards are ideal for rendering 3d graphics for CGI animation and the like. I am not sure how they do in GPU video encoding like quick sync on Intel iGPUs or NVENC on Nvidia cards. I know that AMD cards have a video encoding feature called VCE but I have not had any experience using it. As GPU encoding does not produce the best quality video, most NLE applications don't use it but some like Premiere Pro CC use openCL to accelerate filters while the CPU does the rendering. I would imagine that ReLive is using VCE though to encode the game recording just as the Nvidia equivalent uses NVENC

    GTBTK got a reaction from Chaos_Sorcerer in Has there ever been a time when AMD's top offering was superior to that of Nvidia's?   
    That is certainly true. Pascal gains have come more from clock speeds than from some amazing new innovation other than die shrink that allows the higher clock speeds.
     
    The only real exception to that is the implentation of pascals ability to use software to enable async compute that Maxwell lacks

    yes Intel licences 64 bit tech from AMD but AMD also licenses CPU tech from Intel as well

    GTBTK got a reaction from tarfeef101 in Single GTX 1070 or 2x480 crossfire?   
    2x rx480 has the potential to be a bit faster however, Crossfire cards are not supported in all games and also suffer from micro stutter and other anomolies.
     
    The single 1070 slightly less powerful but still a beast, is supported fully in all games and does not suffer the same stutter problems associated with dual GPU setups.
     
    I would go with the 1070 for the smoother experience
